From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. Red Velvet Cookies are a perfect addition to a Christmas cookie tray. Red velvet cake is traditionally topped with cream cheese frosting, but I want a cookie that doesn't need refrigeration, so I use cookie frosting.
Cream: 1/2 c butter 1/4 c crisco 1 c sugar 1/2 c brown sugar
Add: 1 egg 2 tsp vanilla
Add: 2 1/2 c flour 3 Tbsp cocoa 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp red food coloring 1 tsp milk
Roll into walnut sized balls. Place on a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat.*
